Really random question.
Basically I’ve enrolled in a clinical trial (don’t judge, but I really want a new power meter ). At the screening the Doctor has said there will be training restrictions due to muscular breakdown showing as elevated liver values (creatine kinase) which would mean I’d have to restrict/ cut out weightlifting and running, but there was no specific mention of cycling…
I’ve googled and done a search on the TR forum but haven’t seen any form of answer.
I’m happy to keep intensity low and avoid taxing intervals, but how demanding is cycling from the viewpoint of muscular damage? I have a relatively light spin of approx 90rpm, I’ve been working on lower intensities recently as I basically have no aerobic base so I figured I’d start to build one.
Anyone have any cycling specific experience/links? Ideally I’d like to be able to train “something”, if I can’t I probably won’t enroll. Thanks!
